    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Work itself is rewarding
    - Senior or veteran employees are mostly helpful & approachable
    - online training resources are good

    Cons

    - Managers are almost always unfit to be human being, let alone manager. Horrible personalities, zero people skill, very rude & very unpopular to all employees.
    - upper management is the same way, they maintain this culture of dominating & dictating employees with zero regards or respect. It's not your hard skills or soft skills, it's your connections that get you promotion or get you into management.
    - many 15-20-25 yr veterans were leaving the company because of this horrible treatment & disrespect by so called managers who are in power. They loved the company, but couldn't take it any more to see how the culture had gone so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the managers & their managers. Focus on changing the culture so people enjoy working there with each other and as a team. Partnership is the new leadership, managers must posses soft skills to deal with people on their team. Mutual Respect is vital, because at the end all are just employees of the same company chasing a paycheck, nobody is ruler and nobody is slave, else all are slave anyway. So get your perspectives right, get off the high horse.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many systems and projects to work with. Applications and other software.

    Cons

    There are very big problems due to lack of organization. Constantly changing priorities, projects, resources and much more. To address that and poor earnings projects cancelled, people let go and others brought in. This was what happened the two times there.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get their act together. When earnings are poor don't do the short term resolutions. If something needs to be done with the staff start with those who make decisions and constantly change them.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for with many benefits Offers many classes and a great place for new graduates to start their careers

    Cons

    It is all about the stock price. Can be a very unethical place as employees are treated as just a number on a spreadsheet and always have layoffs so the executives can get their bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    A company is not about it's stock price but its's about the employees. The first level employees do 90% of the work yet real raises seem to happen only at the top.

    Confusion around management team and transition to split the company make the environment not stable to work force. I did not feel valued by the company.

    Cons

    At the beginning the company value its employee by providing them with growth and appreciation for their loyalty. offered very good work life balance.

    Go back to the core, take care of your employee especially the old one, they can still contribute and pass alone their experiences to the young fleet coming in.
